Tamarind Chutney for Chaat

Tamarind chutney is drizzled over Indian Chaat items along with Mint/Coriander Chutney and diluted yogurt to make a tangy, spicy and tasty snack.Traditionally this is simmered with fresh tamarind to form a thick paste but this is my version of quick chutney.

Preparation time 10 minutes 
Serves 1 cup
Serving Size 1 tablespoon
Calories Per Serving Approximately  per serving
Difficulty Easy



Ingredients:
1 cup tamarind paste
3/4 teaspoon red chili powder(adjust to your spiciness)
1 teaspoon coriander powder
pinch ginger powder
pinch black pepper powder
black salt(kala namak) to taste
1 cup sugar or jaggery(adjust to your sweetness)
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon fennel powder

Procedure:
1.Combine all the ingredients in a  bowl and mix until sugar/jaggery is dissolved.

2.Let Simmer on stove for 5 minutes on medium low flame so the mixture thickens. Chill before serving.

Tips:
If your tamarind paste is too thick you can add little water to let it cook through and not get burnt during simmering.
